The police have resisted from arresting criminals as a result of the strike by the Justice Ministry's state prosecutors, Channel 10 news reported on Monday.

Suspects, including those who may be involved in murder, have not been arrested by police due to a lack of state prosecutors who claim their wages have deteriorated badly. The strike has reached a week in duration on Monday.

Elite police units have not been carrying out arrests that were intended to be to occur in the following days. For every arrest, a state prosecutor must accompany the case.

Police investigators fear that if an arrest and investigation is carried out without a prosecutor, the case may not be valid.
